My Hands are Full!

my hands are full013

My hands are full of packing boxes, sorting paper, deciding! What goes and what stays behind in the big move! But I wanted to share with you these hands that are stamped with a great new stamp which Santa brought. Looks like words but you can’t quite read. Super for backgrounds. You can visit the artist’s Etsy Shop at Artistic Renderings (.

Have fun and tell her that I sent you!

Gone From Sight


but not from our thoughts! I knew it was nearly impossible after all this time but I kept hoping that somewhere in the world someone would find a way to free those kidnapped schoolgirls! The Nigerian government  tried and basically were told to go fly a kite!  The rebel group holding them said they had converted to Islam and been married! do you believe that? I don’t.  What a terrible thing those parents must face – never to see their girls again! I cant imagine how I would have felt had they been my girls! Please don’t forget them! Its a crazy world we live in and just maybe someday someone will find a way to bring them home! Meanwhile you could say a little prayer for their safety!

You Make My Heart Smile


What else can I say! I love reading what you have to say  and I appreciate your taking the time to look at my “work”  !  I found this quotation in amongst all bits and pieces and thought it was perfect! Thank you  !

Here they come


Here they come!  The last of the dancers! For some strange reason I’ve been possessed by these dancing men with costumes of hand made paper. They are attached to paper spattered with black and a hand carved stamp of swirls. I tell myself no more! Its time to move on! I wonder if there is a message here that I am not “getting”  In any event you will not be visited by any more dancers. If I have my way!

IMG_2801We have done many things over the summer but nothing that would be something special to blog about. I have fussed and fumed about all kinds of things, but to no avail. The missing girls in Africa have not been found,  no wars have been stopped and no terrorists captured. And I cant do anything about any of it but bellyache! However World Peace Day does come this month and I did feel inspired to make a “Flag for Peace” !As ever my walking women are searching for Peace as pieces of the globe fly off behind them and the birds of doom fly overhead!  We can only hope and pray for Peace in the world!

Summer Fun ?

lillys and pops tree

When  I go out my back door this is what I see! Wish they looked like this all year around  ! M y neighbor’s kitchen window looks out on the Lilys  too . They hide the base of the steps in the summer and give us both something pretty to see. Indoors I’ve been busy cleaning out closets, moving pictures around, and trying to get rid of stuff I don’t need !Lots of stuff!  The Goodwill store has seen me often lately! Art work has taken a back seat this summer, but its calling me  and soon I’ll have some different things to share with you! Meanwhile, have a happy, calm, cool Summer!

Walking Women

The women walking in the header above will be there and keep walking until we learn the true fate of those Nigerian girls who were kidnapped! I realize many things must be done quietly and behind the scenes but we have heard nothing , not even that the search is on! I cant believe that the mothers of the world will just forget about the whole thing!Please write, email, facebook , do something to remind the powers that be that we want those girls found!

Talk, Talk, Talk

Lets all stop talking and write the President and Ms. Obama to tell them we are appalled at the kidnappings in Nigeria and that we want the U.S. to DO something logical to get them back! Do we have to pay for the girls release? Perhaps that’s the only way to go and then relieve the hoodlums of their leader! Something  has to be done! Please write the White house and let them know your thoughts! What would our Govt. do  if these were American girls???

Is it Spring Yet?

I know what the calendar says! But the thermometer says 30 some degrees! Easter is upon us  and I needed a card for you! So rather than go out in the cold I gathered the scraps on the table and made you a basket of flowers! Happy Spring!
